Personally i'd go with a ryzen cpu if your doing more cpu intensive tasks.

The 8700k actually matches the 1800x in multi-core benches when comparing overclocked to overclocked. So not only do you get amazing single core performance the multi-core performance is close to that of Ryzen 8 core parts.

I didn't know that, just thought more cores = better for editing, good to know cause i plan on going with a 1700 over a 8600k but i think i'm going to stick with the 1700 for better future upgrades and to save a little money.

More core is usually better for editing but the 8700k can sometimes have a full GHz over its Ryzen counterpart.
